stuart: here it is. the monday morning highlight reel. roll it, please. the hype over the new galaxy. it is over a new feature. scroll over new pages just using your eyes. >> now all of a sudden it will be able to read my eyes? there has to be something negative about that. stuart: they have replaced apple. apple used to have the buzz. go for samsung. charles: you will get eye strain stuart: maybe connell can explain, perhaps. it is yours. connell: thank you very much for
11:02am
that. the four-year anniversary of the bull market. we'll show you today what may keep those old running for the rest of the year. how do you work? more and more people using public transportation. this may be a welcome development for many people, more employers are offering a naptime for their workers. dagen: hi there. when in doubt, holler. connell: we have some breaking news coming in. dagen: blake gasparino joining us now with the story on the phone. charlie: i wish i could be with
11:03am
you to do this. this guy is a very prominent guy. morgan stanley is in advanced talks to make the senior members of the executive teams. morgan stanley has the largest brokerage on wall street. a key thing for the strategy is to promote that brokerage department. make it a bigger preference out morgan stanley. he will be the guy that coordinates the effort between the various departments inside. that is pretty important. morgan stanley brokers deal with a lot of high individual people.
11:04am
they send those deals to other firms. they keep profits internally and boost that share price. this is not a commlete done deal. they have been in negotiations for the last six weeks. the guy who heads the wealth management department is likely to offer this, officially, later on today and he would be named sometime tomorrow morning unless, of course, they speed everything up because of our reporting which is a possibility. that is where we are right now. a fascinating story. connell: was an incident, i guess, where he had spoken out against warren buffett. he called him a hypocrite, or
11:05am
whatever. charlie: i do not think you leave a place and go to a big waste. this is a pretty amazing job. gary would not comment on this thing. morgan stanley would not comment. i have sources inside the firm. i bet my pinky that this will happen. we will know a little bit more later today. full disclosure, i used to work there. i don't think they handled at the right way. he left because of a job. he worked there for many years. he left right before -- it was a
11:06am
member of lehman brothers. he really saw the collapse coming up way early. he fielded a lot of jobs. i think that you know, one of the reasons he is going to morgan stanley is because he likes morgan and he likes plumbing. he used to be one of the best investment planners. i believe he was newberger's investment banker. i think no one leaves a good job just because you are not at your boss for some reason, you go to another job. a lot of people will be talking about why dairy is leaving.
11:07am
connell: all right. i am sure you will have more on it. charlie: we have a big story running on fox business.com. connell: great stuff, as always. dagen: the first trading day since saturday. connell: we have that brown with us today. it is always good to have him on. good to see you. dagen: do not let connell scare you. [ laughter ] >> thank you for inviting me. connell: everyone has the most basic question, hey, now what? >> there has been a lot of momentum. to a large extent, i think there is a lot of euphoria out there. if you look at small and mid
11:08am
type stocks, the s&p 500 as a proxy for the market as a whole, closing at 1551 on friday. i think the s&p estimates are roughly at $111. that is where they were out last year. the fourth quarter, earnings were down. i am more realistic. i think earnings will be 103-104. historical norms, that is one multiple note cheaper it is not a raving by. dagen: what takes the wind out of this? >> i do not think we will see higher interest rates. i think bernanke and the fed are committed to keeping the petal to the metal, as they say. we are supposed to get down to 6.5% unemployment. with the sequestration, we will
11:09am
lose another 700,000 jobs this year. dagen: do not worry at all? >> i know the ten years back over 2%. that does not bother me, 2% is not real competition. what concerns me is a little bit of gambling fever when you look on shows like yours and company comes in light. if they do better than expected, it has a 40 market and goes up. that is not investing, that is casino reality. speak that you are not blaming us for this, are you? >> not at all.
11:10am
connell: if the fed were to say and interest rates were to start going up, without necessarily be the end of the world for the stock market? >> i do not think so, but i think you have to be selective. you have to stay with fundamentals. i and a deep value person. there are good valuation where you can find good stocks. that is what i would stick with. companies with good balance sheets. do not reach for the moon. connell: that is good advice. good to have you here in new york. let them you want even more. dagen: i had some things i wanted to ask you and we ran out
11:11am
of time. connell: thank you. dagen: house republicans who released -- paul ryan previewing the budget on fox news monday. >> they have us on a path towards a debt crisis that hurts everybody, that brings us to a recession, that gives us a european type of experience. we will higher wages, more jobs, a growing economy. we get that by balancing the budget. dagen: joining us is now editorial page editor at the washington examiner. this budget that paul ryan will propose, david, it includes repealing obamacare. that will not happen, will it? >> it is not likely while obama is president because he would have to sign it, of course. they will not actually repeal
11:12am
obamacare. that does not mean it cannot be repealed with certain provisions in it. there are lots of things like the medical device taxes and other changes that could make it less expensive. in the end, what ryan is looking at and talking about here is some way of avoiding the real pain later of true austerity. dagen: what would mean true austerity, though, and explained the difference between, if you will call minor cuts that we have experienced with the so cluster and what true austerity would mean for the country. >> we need a valid approach. austerity and europe has taken a very balanced approach. we will massively raise people's taxes and we will cut their benefits dramatically. it is on a much larger scale than with anything we have seen.
11:13am
any of the minor attempts to cut spend here. even entitlement reforms that will take affect years out. those are very minor compared to what you would end up with. this is what ryan message has kind of been. austerity is not about scaling back benefits for people who were tired several years from now. austerity is when you tell current recipients of social security we are cutting your checks in half and we are raising everyone's taxes by 30%. that is what they are doing in these european countries. before you said, yes, though. it is roughly 12 years, i think, where medicare will not be able
11:14am
to pay full dollar for dollar benefits. will we wait for that day and then congress has to take some dramatic action? >> that is exactly the question. those are the terms, either we can deal with this now or we can wait until we are forced to implement austerity at some point. that will mean scaling back medical benefits for senior citizens or dramatic tax hikes again. or it will mean something like sacrificing other budget priorities so we continue to have this sustain the unsustainable. we will shut down white house tours that lay off firefighters a policeman across the country, we will stop educating children, cancel programs that fund these things. that is how we will end up paying for medicare. something has to give. it is better to give now when you can still get away with it.
11:15am
you can still make the cuts must and sustainable. dagen: let's hope people are listening. david, thank you. be well. thank you for being here. connell: off to a good start on markets now. two big to fail. thanks getting set to face a second round now. dagen: naptime is not just for four -year-olds. more employers are setting up nap rooms and office. i hope we have good video for this. you'll have to to wait and see. take a look at how oil is trading today. record-breaking run for the blue-chip oil. ♪ friday night, buddy.

11:21am
10%. we may also hit a record high in the broader stock market. it will be all about momentum. a lot of analysts are coming out and identified the fact that some of the etf's that track the s&p 500 are a considerable amount of inflows. money is coming back. $1.84 billion has flowed into the s&p etf on the one on the top there so far in march. there have only been six trading days in march. this momentum from the retail investor or you could say the average investor, it will push it to an all-time high. keep that in mind. there is $125 billion in assets under management in just that

watching it so closely on, obviously, buyout offers and the like, and, today, carl io cahn said they are in an confidential agreement with dell to look at the information confidentially, and working on that. we knew that was going to be able to shop around, and they are doing so. back to you. cheryl: thank you very much. see you in 14 minutes from now. dow higher by 17 points. bulls are back, a recent momentum in stocks that comets long temple. hefty wealth partners joining me now, eric, the senses say that stocks have that natural pullback, the great highs last weekings but there's going to a correction if you will. what do you say? >> well, we definitely think that's a potential for short term volatility, maybe a pullback, cheryl, but, ultimately, we think several things happen to keep the markets moving forward
12:04pm
throughout the rest of the year. when we look at -- chel -- cheryl: go ahead. >> the zero interest rate policy that we had, remember what a certificate of deposit was, people don't think about them because interest rates are so bad, stocks are still cheap on a pe ratio basis. we're 20% less than we were at the 2007 highs, about 40% less than 2000 highs, and we think that's giving us enough to propel us forward. cheryl: bears say it's fed fueled, and the minute of the correction, if you will, they step buying securities and that's when the party will be over. do you think that some of this is, indeed, caused by the fed and that we've got to actually get more realistic about stock rice prices? >> cheryl, i think the fed played a very, very large part where we are at tea today and
12:05pm
going forward, and look at this saying the worst case scenario played out is over. the fed has essentially said they said investing into the market place and continue to pump cash into the economy. as long as that happens, we think that is given us fun dation -- foundation where we are out and upward momentum can continue. if the fed changes the stance, you have to reassess where you are at, ensure there's a appropriate portfolio to capture the up and downside, but people look at the inside of it, how do we continue this going up and ensure we participate. >> participating, but there's a point to the clients that really, these new highs by the dow don't mean anything. it is the s&p, and, frankly, the s&p is a better barometer of the overall market against the dow, only 30 stocks. look at the ibm section of the dough dow, anne there's a rally. if overall, the s&p, do we hit the new history making high this
12:06pm
week in the s&p, and does that give you the signal, hey, this market is real? >> well, we definitely think that there is a couple pieces of information here this week. if that comes in, we think we could hit a new s&p high as of friday. the thing to keep in mind is, on the dow, there's a lot of press about the highs, these are not inflation adjusted, norpt of 15700 before we can say, hey, we're back to where we were,ing including inflation and everything else moving forward. the s&p is under valued 15% compared to inflation adjusted or not. in terms of nominal numbers, it could happen this week. cheryl: the gold play and trade doesn't make sense now. what do you mean? >> well, we think that it could make sense. one of the things that's constant the past several years is federal assets on federal balance sheet increase, the price of gold increases with it. there's 5 gap between the two numbers thinking that means there could be buying opportunities in a way that kind
12:07pm
of leverage out of the areas of the market so we don't -- we think that the gold rush is definitely over, but it's one we want to keep hands into just to instruct her we get yield and return on the portfolio when we can. cheryl: you like the industrial sectors, but do they, do you think, make sense for the viewers for the entire year or are they interesting in the short term? >> as long as the federal government continues to do what it's doing in the economy. i think they realize there's no dragging waiting around the corner to bite the head off. there's comfortability and confidence returning to the marketplace. when that happens, that's where the spending starts to increase. we think automobiles have bottomed out a little bit. we think housing bottomed out, getting back to the piece, the two areas of the market we are excited. cheryl: eric, thank you very much. >> thanks, cheryl. cheryl: despite president
12:08pm
obama's recent efforts to reach out to republicans, he's clearly in for a battle over their budget proposal. joining us now with more, rich? >> good afternoon, cheryl, it is budget week in congress. house budget committee chairman paul ryan releases the 10-year spending plan tomorrow and consider the opening offer for republicans in the budget fights with democrats. ryan repealed the law to be a premium support or voucher system. for those younger than 55, and age say the budget contains no increases and allows for tax reform claiming the plan ensures the federal government spends as much money as it takes in in the next temperature years. ryan says these cuts will lead to growth. >> we think we owe the american people a balanced budget. we want to respect hard working taxpayers, and we think there's a responsible plan to balance the budget. the reason we do is not to make the numbers add up.
12:09pm
it leads to a healthy growing economy that creates jobs. >> democrats who called ryan's budget dangerous saying it features deep cuts for the poor and elderly while protecting the wealthy. for the first time in four years, senate democrats and budget committee chairman patty murray will release a budget later this week. the president's budget is not expected until earlier next month. dennis, back to you. dennis: thank you, rich edson. rep paul ryan releasing the latest proposal as you saw there just as president obama intensifies his new charm offensive. the president meets with senate democrats tomorrow and house republicans wednesday. joining us now, greg of patomic research group. you know, we teased the idea you think some democrats are beginning to fear that president obama is going to somehow betray them, sell them out, please, explain. >> well, he did in the summer of 20 # 11, dennis putting on the able all sorts of stuff the house was not aware of like
12:10pm
raising the eligibility ages on medicare and social security. look, he for sure is going to do something on the social security color, and there's a lot of democrats in the house who don't even like that. they worry he could do even more. dennis: huh, gee, i call that leadership. coming up with tough proposals and good ideas when you have to crunch. what's the fear that will happen? what will obama do to undercut his own party? >> oh, again, cave on entitlements, and you can see a real backlash there. we had a wonderful dinner. i think, i agree, it's leadership. he had a great dinner two or three nights ago in dc. he has not gone out with many democrats, and i think an awful lot of them need some tlc when they meet with the president later in the week. dennis: rep ryan released a budget, but it's predicated in part on repealing obama care. he has no chance of getting that done. in denial the republicans lost the presidential election? >> yeah, minor detail, huh? he says, oh, we're going to
12:11pm
repeal obamacare. it's not going to happen. look, all the budgets are political doesn'ts. patty murray's budget calling for tax hikes, political document. paul ryan's political document, the news here, though, is that both sides are getting a little closer on entitlements, a very big deal. don: -- dennis: the democrats fear they are sold out on entitlement cuts, but obama has a rare chance as nixon a conservative could open relations with china, obama as a democrat liberal could propose cuts and not get pillared by the opposition. suspect this a rare opportunity? shouldn't president obama sell out the democrats in that case? >> well, i've been told that within the white house, he's said to people that part of the legacy is that he was the president who put entitlements on a sounder footing. this is the chance.
12:12pm
they are on the table now. they have a rare opportunity. dennis: his budget is coming up. do you expect to see restraints proposed in the democratic budget coming up, the first one in quite a few years? >> i think that's a political document also. don't forget, dennis, the reason the howlings -- house and senate have a budget pass is if they don't, they are not paid. the senate passes one because they want their paychecks. dennis: nothing like negative incentive. thank you for reading the tea leaves. >> you bet. cheryl: well, good news for the economy, but not traders. gas prices lower. live at the cme with the details. dennis: shark, not the business variety, but the fish type, sharks spring break tourism threatened in florida, beaches closed, thousands of sharks too close. better video coming up, and i'm headed down there next week. cheryl: bobby flay expanding the

12:18pm
survey, and she's predicting another drop of 5-10 cents. i agree, but this morning was scary. the futures were soaring. it started on friday on words of a lot of concerns about refineries across the country, wholesalers buy first, ask questions later. the big issue with the future is that it's a threat is a shortage of renewable fuel credits. that's right. record highs of renewable fuel credits causes potential shortages of gasoline. exporters who don't have the credit may not export to the united states, causing a tight market, especially on the east coast. now, let's go to the touch with sandra smith. >> all right, phil. i'll take it from there. i know what you and the other traders in chicago watch is the s&p 500, and let me remind everybody as this rally continues on this monday morning, that the s&p 500 all-time closing high is 1565,
12:19pm
and that was in october 2007. flip the chart, guys, i want to show you the interday high. 1576 for the s&p. keep that in mind as i flash out of this and into an interday chart of the s&p 500 hitting the highs of the session at 1553, now just 12 points shy of the making the record high. seemed unattainable earlier this year, and now it looks like it could be in play. as we continue to watch that, guys, i want to remind everybody on a year to date basis the s&p is still under performing the dow, up 9% this year while the dow is up 10% so far this year, so there is an argument that the s&p has catching up to do. that said, guys, i want to jump into the s&p 500etfs because this is where we see a lot more investor attention coming from the retail mom and pop investors. the s&p, spy, the biggest of them out there, it's been obviously tracking the s&p well. it fell 1.8 billion in in flows
12:20pm
in march. if you're charles payne, you say, oh, that's not that much money. $1.8 billion in inflows is better than out flows, only six days that's happened in the month of march. keep that in mind. you can take it from there. cheryl: time to make money with charles payne. broad vision, i have a couple questions about that. anything about sandra smith? >> maybe broad vision invests from the investor money sandra's talking about. those who miss the rally come in and swing for the fences not buying ibm, but i missed four years worth of rally. this is a high risk idea, okay, there's no doubt about it. it's interesting. one i use -- i like a company fundamentally, and then i let the volume tell me when to pull the trigger. i'm not 100% sold on the fundamentals of this, but the volume, guys, is absolutely mind

18th largest bank, and the house committee holds a hearing, and a senate committee holds a hearing friday on jmmorgan chase's london trading loss. too big to fail, as we heard from the s&p guy, that big banks would get government bailouts if they get into trouble. that gives them competitive advantages, critics say. dodd-frank financial reform was supposed to eliminate all of this, but critics say it did not go far enough. they want congress to break up the big banks which are pushing back. >> it helps economic growth generally and more broadly because if you get banks helping on serving the real economy rather than using this implicit subsidy to play speculative games on wall street, i think that helps the overall economy. >> we believe dodd-frank ended the debate on too big to fail or reduced arguments that too big to fail exists for a number of
12:29pm
reasons. first of all, banks are stronger with more capital, less liquidity, less leverage, there's elimination of the riskier practices. dennis: a handful of lawmakers propose legislation to put limits on the big bank or break them up, but this legislation faces an uphill face in congress in the face of intense bank opposition. dennis? dennis: thank you very much, peter barnes. cheryl: well, the dow up for the last three weeks and today, and so is now the time to think about getting into bonds. somebody said the bond market is dead, but bill o'donald, head of the treasuries security to find out if now is the time. don't miss that interview at 1 p.m. eastern time here on fox business. getting into bonds, not stocks. i don't know. the bond market's been beat up. dennis: i just have nothing to add on bonds. i know nothing about them.

12:36pm
down the street in my neighborhood? will they go out of business because you can't sell digital files bought off of amazon, any book you buy. what happens there? >> right. it's multifaceted. amazon is the big player here, but you have the publishers, and if a publisher is told a used book was sold, but that's okay, you know, we're not going to pay you for it because somebody else sold it back to us. it returns industry, and publishers feel they were taken advantage of, sold books that they didn't get their cut on it it's going to get complicated. cheryl: google, microsoft are going after the top tier, vary -- very attractive dot-apps, and they say this provides a unique and dedicated platform for amazon protecting the integrity of its brand and reputation. i guess a dot-app, i mean, really? is this the argument that's going to fly in >> it doesn't fly.
